I've got almost all(*) of RHEL Update 4 (aka CentOS/axp 4.4) built, but
it's not officially endorsed by CentOS yet, and may never be.

in the mean time, my yum repo is here:
  http://www.cita.utoronto.ca/~rjh/centos/alpha/RPMS.updates/

I'm keeping that updated as best I can.
feel free to use it :-)
the rpms that I've made aren't officially signed by the CentOS key so
unfortunately you'll need to disable the gpg check to use the repo.

I'll happily include any patches sent this way!
also if anyone feels like re-spinning a CentOS 4.4 CD then feel free.

source rpms that I've had to re-patch for axp or to fix up in some way
or another are up a dir in the obvious place. changelogs in the rpms
tell the story.

cheers,

(*) except these.
many of which weren't in prev CentOS/axp and a bunch of which are
InfiniBand related which isn't supported by the linux/alpha kernel
anyway. I can probably build numctl too but unfortunately NUMA is
listed as BROKEN in current kernels.
